The attack on  Christian worshippers at St Francis Catholic Church in Owo in Ondo State, Nigeria, killing scores of worshippers by unknown gunmen and injuring a few on Sunday, has continued to generate condemnation from the people of Nigeria and the international community.
The Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, visited the scene of the attack Monday.
 President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership at the state and local government levels have vehemently condemned the attack.

The Governor of the State, Rotimi Akeredolu, had cut short his trip to the APC national convention in Abuja to visit St Francis  Catholic Church and the survivors of the attack and those injured. It is the first major attack in the South West of Nigeria in recent times. The incident happened less than 12 hours before the National Convention of the All Progressive Congress(APC) in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
